Although It is located out of the center of Puno, It is easy to reach by cab. The surrounding is beautiful, right next to titicaca lake. If any suggestion, I wish the staffs English ability can be better considering this is kind of big chain hotel in Peru.
This hotel is about 10 minutes out of Puno on a reserve at the edge of Lake Titicaca. Wonderful quiet location. About $2 or $3 US in a taxi to town or much less for a collectivos ( local Bus). Great buffet breakfast and nice restaurant with out look to the hotels llamas who watch you while your watching them. The rooms have heaters, comfortable beds and are very clean. There is complementary hot coco leaf tea and a fireplace to sit and enjoy it after a hard day touring. The staff are very helpful and have a fair grasp on English. Good value hotel.
I liked that it was away from the noise and bustle of Puno; right on the marshlands of Titicaca, great sunrises. And the restaurant was very good, with a nice glass veranda. Especially inviting were the comfy bay windows in each room that allowed you to feel like you were outside while still enjoying the comforts of the room.
This hotel is away from the center of town, which is what I was looking for in Puno. A taxi to the Plaza de Armas only costs 7 soles, so it is inexpensive to get back and forth. The restaurant at the hotel is not good, however. The food is not great, and everything on the menu is overpriced. (Perhaps because there are no other restaurants in walking distance for dinner...). In addition, the service at the restaurant was horrible. Other than the food, however, the rooms were large and comfortable. I would recommend this hotel, just go elsewhere for food.
